(Isabel Marant “The Weez” Jacket & ”Jenny” Boots)
So I felt the need to show you guys exactly what jacket I was talking about in my previous post. The Isabel Marant “The Weez” Jacket. And trust me when I say I already did some searching on Ebay. No luck yet. In my price point anyway. This is the perfect jacket. I stare at it and get dreamy eyed. I love the tie dye quilted fabric and embellishing. It truly is a craftsman’s piece.
And now that we are on the subject let’s talk about another item I have been wanting. I am still dying for those boots! The Isabel Marant “Jenny” Boot. Now this whole matter is kind of in relation to my continual Europe travel talks. I have been wanting these boots forever. Forever. But naturally the price point is a little too high for me. So when I was in Paris for soldes I formulated a whole plan in my head and mentally prepared myself to purchase these boots. I was even thinking about purchasing these boots weeks before I left for my trip! [That's how much I want them!] So in my formulated plan these boots were going to be anywhere from 30%-50% off. Deal. Still a little high but definitely more affordable. But guess what happened when I went to the Isabel Marant store, tried them on, and went to the checkout counter?? They were not on sales! No soldes boots! Apparently they are considered apart of the new collection. Guhh!!
Which gets me onto my next subject. I am in a really weird fashion phase of my life. I was talking to my friend Virgi the other day and we both agreed that we are hanging in the balances of our fashion taste. We don’t want to buy cheap, fast fashion but we cannot afford those designer gems. Our taste is bigger than our bank accounts. A cheap tank top from the local juniors store doesn’t satisfy our fashion drive any more and hasn’t for years. [But before I even look at the price tag] the threads I am attracted to are always incredibly high priced. It’s not even on purpose! It’s a fashion conundrum. And that’s why our solution is to satisfy our fashion taste is by buying everything on discount! Maybe a little trick of the trade I can go in to more detail later!
But back to the important things: That jacket, those boots. Mmmmmm.
